Exactly. Just them covering their asses so that their insurance company will cover them. That note simply lets them place blame on you. My nelson rigg tank bag instructions said the same thing and it survived on my speed triple with no problems.

Question Any UK Scrammers wanna go halves on some Wolfman Expedition Panniers?

Now then, troops!

After a load of research (and also a good deal of fannying around) I'm about to pull the trigger on a set of very lovely Wolfman Expedition Panniers:



http://www.wolfmanluggage.com/Expedi...ddle_bags.html

Big deal, huh?

...Well, here's the potentially interesting bit: I'm going for a single-sided set-up, so only really need one bag, which I'm going to have a rack fabbed up for and mount on the left side of the bike (using the 'other' mounting kit which works on any oval/rectangular style rack with a frame height of not more than 9.5").



http://www.windingroads.co.uk/shop/p...k_mount_system

This means I'll have a spare bag (they're not directional, so a right side bag can be used on the left and vice versa) and I wondered if anyone liked the idea and wanted do the same and split the cost?

The panniers come in at just under 170 for the pair at windingroads.co.uk and the 'other' mounting kit is 15, so anyone who's got a shade over 90 can have the same set-up as I'll have. I'm going to experiment with the throwover saddle straps to see if I can loop them under and over the pillion seat or secure them to the subframe and back on to the solo bagola.

It is possible that this might require use of the entire saddle strap system and therefore make it necessary to get a second set for the other bag (these are interchangeable and can be purchased separately for around 12). If this is the case I'll take that into account in the selling price of the bag.



I might get some [hideously overpriced!] matching stuff sacks too, which come in sets of four (two per bag). If so, I'd be happy to split these down the middle too, which would work out at around 16 for each of us.



http://www.windingroads.co.uk/shop/p..._t_stuff_sacks

I'm going to get the black panniers ASAP. Once I have them, I'll work on the rack and figure out if I'll need to get a second set of saddle straps for the 'spare' bag. Then I can send you your very own super sweet, single-sided set-up complete with my acquired learnings on strapping and rack fabbing.


Whaddyasay?



Mike


P.S. Here's a standard installation vid:

106 mph indicated on my bike with tank bag, my pannier set-up and my baffle removed on that part of the day.
Rippin'.
My buddy blew by on his Guzzi...

A grade or tail wind makes a huge difference in to top speed, along with (for me) using the stock contershaft sprocket.

Oh I always felt the need for a tach, but not on my Scrambler. The torque curve feels flat and its is hard to over-rev (unless you're trying to do the ton) for me because it is just useless spinning. Good power spread.
Not a lot of power but useful power.

The simple single gauge is it for me.
Good option though (the tach) for those that feel the need...

Collected my 09 Scrambler today from north Wales. 124 mile ride home in the
pouring rain. Cat and fiddle pass had standing water which was a bit alarming.
But no drama fortunately. I am very happy.

They can. ...Mine were.
The dealer did not believe it when I asked them to swap the header pipes over.
They still didn't admit the pipes were reversed.
There should be a bulletin for service depts just for this.
Its embarassing.

Funny they fit both ways.

Welcome friend! Rather you than me riding up the A537 on Friday, it really was peeing down most of the day. At least you proved the electrics were good in the wet

Are they still coming out fitted with Bridgestone "Deathwings"?

Yep Trail wings front and back. Bike has 3200 miles on it so they dont wear much it seems. But my last ride was an SP3 with BT 010 s so its hard to compare...
